Can you still configure a dial-up networking connection by double-clicking one of those DUN INI-style files in XP?

I suppose it'd have to be done from an admin account. I need to get a newb to do it remotely

You could use PsExec to do this - so your run the file as an admin, under a limited account.

Is switch.inf what you are referring to?

Actually they probably have a default config which makes them an admin anyway (!?) So that last consideration of mine could be academic.

>>Is switch.inf what you are referring to?

Don't think so. It just looks like an ini file:

I am not sure that you can do this on XP - this seems to be more of a '98 solution...
You can use group policy to configure all this sort of stuff in XP.
